Procaster configuration for DJs
below is a typical configuration required for a DJ planning to stream video and audio (=live mix). Hardware may vary, but essential setting is similar. The only difference is that a DJ may use 2 separate computers to mix and broadcast live video/audio or use the same computer. I will assume that the 2 separate setup is the preferred option, as no DJ will want to "disrupt" his hardware setup dedicated to live mixing and therefore use a 2nd computer for video streaming on Livestream environment. The typical equipment would be as follow:
SETUP 1 - A MAC or PC
external dual sound card (headset + mix out). For example Numark DJIO or M-Audio.
Traktor or other DJ software
audio 1 (main mix) out to club speakers and output re-directed to input of SETUP 2
audio 2 (CUE monitoring)
SETUP 2 - A MAC or PC
1x or 2x Webcam (if 2x webcam you must use Telestream Wirecast in order to switch feed)
Audio input redirected from SETUP 1
Conclusion. I tried this setup unsuccessfully, after reading many posts. Although selecting every possible AUDIO INPUT in Procaster AUDIO MIXER configuration, nothing works.
I have both MAC & PCs and the only method I found for supporting separate Video (webcam) and Audio (Traktor mix output) was using a MAC OS with Traktor and AudioRedirector setting.
This is the ONLY configuration that works after multiple settings and reading all availble resources on this subject.
The person who can help figure this out would be a true (DJ) Hero!!!!!
